EGOSOFT announces that the first expansion for X4: Foundations, X4: Split Vendetta, will be playable for the first time at this year's gamescom in Cologne (August 20 – 24, 2019). In addition, visitors to the EGOSOFT booth in Hall 10.2 ("Indie Village") can take a first look at the new features of the major 3.0 update, which will be released free of charge in the fourth quarter of 2019.

"X4: Split Vendetta" is the next chapter in the "X4: Foundations" story. This is the first big expansion for X4, greatly increasing the size of the universe and introducing two new Split family clans along with their economy, new ships, weapons and station modules.

Along with the Update 3.0 to X4: Foundations, the X4: Split Vendetta expansion brings exciting new missions and adventures to the game. New gamestarts allow an even more varied experience in the biggest sandbox this side of the galaxy.

TRADE with the Split families or FIGHT against them. BUILD your own station designs based on the new modules and THINK carefully on your path through the new diplomatic missions.

Both X4: Split Vendetta (€14.99 / $14.99 / £12.49) and the free 3.0 update to X4: Foundations will be released in the fourth quarter of 2019. X4: Split Vendetta is the first of two expansions that will be available to owners of the X4: Foundations Collector's Edition.
